Scion iQ For Sale

Overview of Scion iQ

The Scion iQ is the smallest vehicle in the Scion’s lineup. At 120 inches long, you may not see it coming, for which the automaker has added a rather strident color palette for a bit of flash. The Shiny metallic and luscious pearl hues, as well as the blazing hot Lava Red color can draw all the attention you could ever want. The Limited Edition Monogram series will have available a special 2-tone color option to turn this micro subcompact into a true piece of eye candy. This swift 3-door hatchback is great for zipping around town and getting through tight traffic. It is powered by a 1.3-liter inline 4-cylinder with VVT-i that makes 94 hp and 89 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a CVT, which is the only option, highway speeds are achieved in just about 12 seconds. Other subcompacts might be faster by 3 seconds, but in this budget range, most are closer to 14 seconds. Extended highway driving is not a forte for this pocket-size car due to its tendency to struggle to keep up with the flow of traffic. For its segment, the iQ also does not quite meet expectations in fuel economy. You can expect it to do 36/37 mpg with a curb weight of 2,127 pounds, a power-robbing CVT transmission and small-output engine. This falls short of even some full-size vehicles. The iQ has a peculiar 3+1 seating arrangement in its interior. You have 3 full size seats for adults and the +1 seat is behind the driver that is way too small for an adult, but perfect for a small child, grocery bags or a backpack. The interior of the iQ is crafted for quality and to maximize space given the car’s petite nature. Slim front seats, a re-designed front-mounted differential and flat-bottom steering wheel are just some of the innovations created to provide maximum comfort for driver and passengers. As you may imagine, rear cargo space is quite limited at only 3.5 cu ft, which is hardly enough space to fit most laptops. However, if you fold the rear seats down it increase to a little more practical 16.7 cubic feet. You still have to pick between carrying cargo or people. Bold style and compact design make the Scion iQ the perfect fit for someone living in a large city with parking spaces that are always hard to find. Your friends will marvel at how you can amazingly perform a U-turn just about anywhere. Sadly, the US market seems to have little to no interest in micro subcompacts, so according to reports, 2015 may be the last year to be put into production.
